Today was the first time I’ve driven in real traffic in quiet some time. It wasn’t an issue. I’ve been driving in some of the worst traffic in the country for several decades. But working from home the last few months has been a really nice break from it and I expect that to continue for several more months.

Who knows, it may be my permanent normal in the distant future. I would love for nothing more than not have to commute to downtown DC on a daily basis. I know my car appreciates not having that daily beating.

And I also know my stress level is down from what it used to be for that task. I really do love to drive. But that trip was getting old after a few decades and it was starting to wear on me.

Well, the sun is setting on another day. This was a special one. Just as they all should be. It’s my mission going forward to make them all special.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I ate fast food today. And I remembered why I don’t eat fast food often.
  • I bet the same people that have trouble keeping 6′ space between your car and theirs are the same people that walk right up behind you these days.
  • At first, I was really missing sports. And then I saw the greed and arrogance of some of the owners and players and it turned me off. Not for good but it certainly makes me feel like less of a sports fan. Maybe you guys should realize how lucky you are and get off your high horse. It’s just a damn game you know. And the fact your taking test away from people who need them because you get tested daily to play a game is really starting to bother me.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
